Unprotected sex: While losing enough weight to reach body mass index 20-25 is ideal especially when attempting to get pregnant, there is no specific amount to lose to guarantee pregnancy. With that said, talk to your family doc and/or obstetrician about your desire for conception. Start taking prenatal vitamins now to lower risk for neural tube defects. Enjoy unprotected sex. Eat right & exercise regularly. ...Read more

Hi. I am 17 yrs old. I am 5.8 feet in height. I want to grow height. What food do I need to eat and how much quantity? Please let me know

Hi. I am 17 yrs old. I am 5.8 feet in height. I want to grow height. What food do I need to eat and how much quantity? Please let me know

Probably can't: At your age, you are unlikely to grow much more, and diet isn't going to impact it. 5'8" is fine; jet li and tom cruise aren't complaining. Shorter men are reported to age more slowly and live a bit longer. Because you're a man, you can look good simply by being physically fit; a trim, defined man of any height looks & feels better than a tall couch potato. Enjoy who you are. ...Read more

Weight loss: would estimate your ideal weight to be about 110-125 pounds. A start would be gradual, for example: 1-eat breakfast (fruit, bran cereal, low fat milk) 2-lean lunch (turkey, whole wheat, no mayo or cheese) fuirt or veggie side, yogurt 3-dinner lean mean (fish, chicken, turkey) 4-5 oz, salad low fat dressing; lots of water with each meal; exercise 20min 3-4x/wk ...Read more

See professionals...: To decide if the size of your penis is truly too small or not, you should see a urologist for detailed general and specific counseling on your concern. In my experience, patient's concern results from personal fantasy although he has a normal-sized penis. Best luck... ...Read more

Tall: You should be commended on your interest of attaining a healthy lifestyle. Assuming you are getting enough calories for adequate growth, genetics plays a major role in determining how tall you may be. Thus, you won't be able to make yourself grow taller. However, you might not be done growing. A simple answer to making yourself look taller is to stand up straight and walk with confidence. ...Read more

Don't mess with meds: You would only need to lose about 7.5kg to get down to into the normal bmi range. To do this best, you need to find a way of eating and exercising that you can live with for the long-term. A great way to eat is to avoid simple, white carbs, including white rice and pasta, as well as white bread. Eat meats and fats, veggies and fruits. Exercise regularly and you'll see weight coming off! ...Read more

If i weigh 250lbs about how much should I be able to lift? Im working out and i can only bench 175lbs thats weak for a guy my size. Im 5'9 in height

If i weigh 250lbs about how much should I be able to lift? Im working out and i can only bench 175lbs thats weak for a guy my size. Im 5'9 in height

Keep working: The key is to hit the gym hard. A respectable gym guy can bench his weight; most non-fitness guys of course can't. Eat sensibly, get used to being good-sore ; good-hungry, work your pecs 3x/week ten sets of three reps maximum, consider creatine but shun illegal steroids. You'll get what you want. Glad you're doing this. ...Read more
